Spanish police seized a large shipment of Dali

January 27 2009

Right in the 20 day anniversary of the death of Salvador Dali, Spanish police seized more than 80 counterfeit works of the great artist. Have also been arrested several works that are most likely the originals stolen at various times in various European countries.

Dali's creations in the southern Spanish in Estepona for sale brought a Frenchman, whose name was not disclosed in the interests of the investigation. This - sculptures, prints, dinner sets and decorative textiles. Now experts are trying to establish that the seized is genuine, and that - no. So far, the relevant conclusions issued twenty sculptured images.

Incidentally, such a precedent - not the first associated with the name of Salvador Dali. Ten years ago, alert the Spaniards already found thousands of lithographs, allegedly belonging to the artist. It turned out that this is a fake.

However, the number of fakes in the world is so large that the authenticity of the works of Dali's quite difficult. And then all hope for in excess of modern technology. Spain in which there are thousands of art masterpieces, they are acquired. And hopefully will be able to separate the wheat from the chaff. In this case, away from its imitators.
